New PS5 Exclusive is going to blow the market. One of PlayStation 5’s recently announced exclusives is a big blow to Xbox and the Xbox Series X.

Last console generation, the “console wars” were quiet. At the time, many mistook this ceasefire as peace, but it wasn’t. The PS4 is set to go down as one of the most successful consoles of all time. Meanwhile, the Xbox One’s disastrous start ensured it was hardly in the same ballpark, let alone the same playing field.

However, towards the end of the console generation, under Phil Spencer, Xbox began to make ground, acquiring studios and building an effective service in Xbox Game Pass. This generation, the PS5, is still beating out the Xbox Series X in sales, partially thanks to the momentum of the PS4, but it’s close. Unfortunately, in the process of Xbox closing the gap, the console wars have been reignited. And in this new era, PlayStation just dealt a big blow to Xbox. 

PS5 Exclusive game will surprise you.

At the PlayStation Showcase, PlayStation announced that Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake is a PS5 exclusive, or at least a timed console exclusive. Anytime you can secure a whole deal for a Star Wars game, it’s a big dub. That said, this isn’t any ol’ Star Wars game. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is widely considered one of the best games of all time. 

There’s more to it than just securing a great Star Wars exclusive, though. When KOTOR was released back in 2003 via BioWare, it was an Xbox exclusive. It eventually came to PC and, even later than that, mobile devices; however, it never came to PlayStation platforms or any other console.
